First time posting any of my projects, hope this is in the correct place.  Cheesy

I've had a gum chain going for about 5 years now, a friend and I started in early high school and is now something I pick at when I'm bored. Found this tutorial on-line a while back and just finally got around to trying it.

Didn't post this in completed because I consider this just the shell of a bag. I'm still undecided if I want to place a lining in the bag before adding the zipper on the top. Also a little indecisive on if I want a loop like a wristlet or a full strap.

Here are my pictures thus far:

Comments welcome and appreciated. Thanks for viewing!  Grin

This looks fantastic. Perhaps you could sew an inner pouch and use fabric glue to attach around the top edge of the cluth. As for a strap? I think it would look better with a wrist strap, if any.

That is so cool.  I want to make one!  Don't forget to post the finished project.
